Withdrawal Management and Treatment Services part time staff provide support to individuals accessing service within our Withdrawal Management and Treatment Services (WMTS) programs. This includes an 18-bed facility (7 withdrawal management beds for any gender and 11 men’s residential treatment beds) and a 10-bed residential treatment facility for women. Part time staff can work shifts in both facilities. Staff are responsible for supporting individuals making changes to their substance use, including both those in active withdrawal and people farther along their recovery journey in our treatment programs. Clients in withdrawal are supported by an interdisciplinary team, including nurses. Your role is to monitor withdrawal symptoms, administer medication as prescribed, facilitate psychoeducational groups, help clients make safety or supports plans for their next steps, and assist with their transition to ongoing services. When working in residential treatment, your role is to facilitate psychoeducational programs that enhance skills and support recovery and run recreational or social activities to engage and support clients.
In addition to supporting clients within the facility, the Agency’s 24/7 crisis line is responded to at the women’s treatment program between midnight and 8 am. During night shifts in that facility, staff respond to crisis line calls and provide supportive listening, coping skills coaching, and safety planning for those who reach out for support. This is a great opportunity to make a difference!
